Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One promises to add even more perilous stunts to the Tom Cruise action franchise. But as part seven’s release approaches, Paramount’s paying tribute to a feature of the films that requires just its star and his very fleet feet. Who knew how much running Cruise did in these movies?

Watch through to the end for a little glimpse of Dead Reckoning Part One, which absolutely looks to continue Cruise’s cardio continuum.
Tuxedo running. Slo-mo running. Gotta-catch-that-helicopter running. Evading-bullets running. Running while ripping away one of those eerily lifelike Mission: Impossible masks. Running while reloading a gun. Running into a terrifying leap out of a building. Running up the side of a building. Running into traffic. Running across rooftops. Running through tunnels. Running and diving through glass. Running through smoke. Lots of stairs and fireballs.
